You Claws: Chanel Peridot dupes



So it seems like every fucking nail polish line in existence has a dupe (or near-dupe) for the gorgeous Chanel Peridot that came out in Fall 2011.

For example:

  • Jessica Iridescent Eye

  • Nicole by OPI Mer-maid for Each Other

  • China Glaze Unpredictable

  • Color Club Editorial

  • OPI Just Spotted the Lizard

  • more?

I still haven’t got my covetous little hands on one of these. Have any of you got one? What do you think? What is the best (in terms of formula and color-changing)? I get the impression that the OPI and Jessica polishes are closest to the Chanel, but I guess that doesn’t mean they are necessarily the best. Anyway, I think the Chanel cost around $24, and these are all more like $4-8, so if you don’t care about being a season behind (I really don’t - I just want to look at pretty colors), then you have lots of options.

Minor correction, the China Glaze dupe is Rare and Radiant, not Unpredictable. Unpredictable is a much more blue green duochrome. And Mermaid For Each Other is a dupe of Unpredictable. I actually gave away my bottle of Chanel Peridot because I prefer the formula of Rare and Radiant.

Right! Thanks! Some of these are not dupes, but are gold-green-blue shifting colors. But I forgot about Rare and Radiant, which is the one like Peridot. Oops!

And good to know! Looks like I need to get to Sally.
